Circumcision Not Recommended

Peyronie’s disease (also known as penile induration) is a connective-tissue disorder involving the growth of fibrous plaques in the soft tissue of the penis, affecting as many as 1-4% of men.  The disease sometimes causes pockmarks along the side of the penis, as well as a narrowing or shortening of the penis.

The condition is sometimes painful in itself, and can result in painful intercourse or erectile dysfunction. It is not contagious and is not cancer. If you think you have Peyronie’s, consult a urologist who specializes in this disease.

Penile curvature is sometimes considered normal. Many men are born with a benign condition, commonly referred to as congenital curvature. It can also be a complication of infant circumcision.
